How Does Polycarbonate Roofing Block Heat?

Polycarbonate can be used in conservatories and greenhouses as an ideal temperature controlled environment for plants, while at the same time blocking UV radiation better than any sunblock lotion would do.

Polycarbonate roofing material’s durability, transparency, thermal insulation properties and energy efficiency make it an excellent choice for patios and pergolas. In this article we’ll investigate if polycarbonate roof can block heat.


With extreme weather across the globe, consumers may wonder whether their buildings are adequately protected against storms such as typhoons and hurricanes, scorching sun or freezing cold temperatures. Typhoons, hurricanes and temperature extremes such as these have all increased exponentially over the years.

Polycarbonate is an ideal material to keep a room from overheating. Lightweight yet simple to install and manage, polycarbonate makes an ideal material choice for any construction project involving sheds, pergolas or greenhouses.

Polycarbonate roof sheets’ flexible nature enables builders to easily shape and adjust them on-site, saving both time and effort in terms of shaping. Furthermore, standard saws can easily cut them to suit your structure for a seamless finish.

Polycarbonate stands out among construction materials for being lightweight and versatile, as well as eco-friendly in production and disposal. Recyclable at the end of its lifecycle, its production requires less resources and energy usage while natural lighting increases while artificial illumination decreases, thus decreasing electricity usage – two reasons that make polycarbonate an attractive choice in both commercial and residential construction projects alike.

UV Blocking

Danpal polycarbonate sheets feature UV blocking technology to effectively block sunlight’s effects, helping protect buildings from yellowing and discoloration while safeguarding people and plants against harmful ultraviolet radiation (UVR) rays.

Twinwall and multi-wall polycarbonate sheets are an excellent choice for greenhouses or conservatories, thanks to being co-extruded with UV absorbers and stabilizers that ensure crystal clarity over time. When installing, ensure the sun-facing side of your sheet faces the sun to maximize UV protection; purlin tape should also be used during transportation and installation to prevent scratched or damaged sheets; stickers indicating UV protection should also help ensure maximum utilization from your polycarbonate sheets.

Noise Insulation

Raindrops on polycarbonate roof sheets create an incessant tinkling sound that is easily heard by neighbours. To reduce this noise, HTG has developed multi-wall polycarbonate sheets with noise insulation technology built right in, helping make buildings much quieter – ideal for outdoor areas such as patios and conservatories.

Due to its nearly unbreakable properties, this material is the material of choice for makers of bulletproof glass and riot shields. Furthermore, its low thermal conductivity keeps heat at bay while cold air remains trapped within.

Polycarbonate sheets make an ideal roofing material for greenhouses, providing plants with shelter from the elements while still being accessible for planting. Solariums and sunrooms also benefit from polycarbonate’s light transmission and thermal insulation properties; providing comfortable spaces year-round that are naturally lit. Furthermore, tinted or clear panels allow homeowners to choose an aesthetic shade for their sunroom or solarium that fits the aesthetic of their home.


When selecting a roof for your greenhouse, sunroom, or patio, one of the key considerations should be how it will withstand environmental factors like hailstorms and high winds – as well as heat and sunlight which may damage it over time.

Polycarbonate can provide the ideal solution. As a durable material, polycarbonate roofing materials have the strength and resilience needed to withstand extreme weather conditions while outlasting other forms. In fact, its near unbreakable strength has even made polycarbonate ideal for use as bulletproof shields and bank windows.

Polycarbonate roofing materials are easy to keep clean, won’t crack or discolor like glass windows or other types of roofs, and require no special cleaning products or maintenance to stay looking their best for an extended lifespan. That is why polycarbonate roofs are popular choices among commercial buildings in Toronto and areas with extreme climates.
